Food was ok - not sure it is value for money - very very very hot on a summer night - I was sweating for the entire time making me sleepy and unconfortable

Took my partner her for a date. The service was attentive but not too in your face/over the top and food wasn't really all that inventive but nicely presented and super tasty. Enjoyed the cocktails and the vibe was really nice in the restaurant.

Overall a place I can see us heading back to very soon.

Really liked the polenta chips.

Great customer service and the food was amazing, it's only a shame we had to send steak back as it was cold on arrival but that was sorted in an instant.

Pleasantly surprised how a basic warehouse was designed to provide such a trendy quirky atmosphere , awesome music with great acoustics . Food we chose was delicious and creative , service was excellent topped off by our waitress from the Gold Coast ... She is a gem

What a fun place. A bit industrial, great amount of space between tables so you weren't in yr neighbour's lap & what great food.

Sharing plates is fine...unless you taste something great & don't want to share.

That was me.

There were dishes - prosciutto, caramelised pear and rocket pizza / popcorn chicken / prosciutto salad with the thin slices of compressed watermelon with rosewater...everything really.

The wine list was good & the barman knew his stuff! Great wait staff too.

Staff were inattentive and the food was very ordinary. It was a very disappointing experience all in all.

The service wasn't great, it kind of like they forgot we were there. I had to ask twice for water and they were tidying up around us while we were waiting to be served. Majority of the food was really great, however one dish which was a salmon dish was really bland and we sent it back. We had to ask twice to get this taken off the bill.

Food was average for the price and brand. Waygu steak was served blue not medium as requested which made it chewy and cold!

$18 for one ravioli which seemed pretty expensive. Need to lift their game if that want to compete with some of the new restaurants in the area.

Great space.

Drinks took too long, some cocktails served in wine glasses.

Don't believe that's the theme as other tables had martini glasses.

Food was good.

Service itself was good but slow.

Wouldn't recommend. Level of service was poor, we waited over 1.5 hours for our mains to arrive, and they forgot that we had ordered a bottle of wine. Only received it after asking for it. Quality of food was not best. Highly disappointed, expected so much more.

My food was cold. I had scrambled eggs and the broccolini was cold, the toast was cold (and small slices of toast as well). The bacon I also ordered was dry and cold. Very disappointed.

When making the reservation I requested a table 'with leg room' as one of our group had her ankle in a cast.

We were most appreciative (& impressed) when 4 of us were seated at a table that could easily have seated 6.

Whilst our meals alone were reason to return, the NZ lady who looked after us effortlessly relegated the food to second place.

She possessed that unique quality of welcoming, friendly professionalism.

Noting our interest in the restaurant's inception she took the time to answer

This is our third Visit & again we weren't disappointed. Only things I would mention are that the Menu hasn't changed a lot & if you don't eat Fish, it's a bit of a challenge. Definitely recommend it to everyone but not sure we'll give it a forth try. Unfortunate because we live nearby.
